Issaquah Zombie Walk celebrates 12 years by welcoming fellow Zombies back to downtown October 23, 2-6pm. Awaken your inner Zombie and plan to delight diners, drivers and spectators on Front Street.

Zombies of all ages are invited to come and crawl throughout downtown Issaquah from 2-6pm Saturday October 23, 2021. Come in your Zombie makeup, outfit and crawl and moan throughout downtown Issaquah with your own Zombie mob, meet up with friends, join in, or just watch. Keep an eye out for flash mobs dancing to Thriller and Time Warp songs. Prizes for best photos of Zombies. See online tutorials for Zombie make-up, how to walk like a Zombie and more.

Events include:

-2-3:30pm – Kid fun station at Shell Station at 232 Front Street. Play games for your chance to win prizes.

-Thriller Flash Mob Dancers. Be on the lookout for Flash Mobs up and down Front Street and City Hall steps which will spontaneously dance the Thriller and Time Warp dances. Sponsored by Glass House Dance.

-Contests with prizes for best Zombie Human and Zombie Dog photos

-2-6PM – Zombies taking over downtown Issaquah attracting the attention of motorists, diners and passers-by on Front Street.

-Back by popular demand are Stan’s Bar-B-Q $1 Eyeballs (meatballs).

The event is free, open to all ages and zombies of all skill levels.

Note: In an attempt to keep the community safe this year, we will not have the dance practice, makeup station, Thriller and Time Warp dances on City Hall steps as a group. However, you are encouraged to come throughout the day, crawl and dance at your own pace throughout downtown Issaquah.
